@mcdragon

Yay is still maintained and will keep receiving updates (ex: pacman 6 support).

I am more focused on making the interfaces on yay more stable and developer friendly, of testing components to avoid them breaking between fixes, checking for bottlenecks. In terms of feature amount you may want to try Paru, Morganamilo has a lot of experience and wisdom on the subject.

This last year has been atypical which also hasn't allowed me to dedicate as much time as I wanted to yay but expect this maintainability focus (as opposed to feature focus) to last at least until summer.

I cannot delete the spam comments appearing regularly in this page, which has also led me to disable notifications from here. I remind that the best way to receive support or report a problem is through the Upstream URL.

@marcin You may have had something installed that had gcc as a dependency, and removed it? You can try grep gcc /var/log/pacman.log to figure it out.

@RubenKelevra I have been using yay on this PC for over 1 years now. Just yesterday I got this error, so I have base-devel installed. Maybe most recent arch update removed it? I don't know.

@marcin it's user error. All AUR packages expect you to have base-devel installed.

Suddenly started getting the following error:

runtime/cgo
# runtime/cgo
cgo: exec /missing-cc: fork/exec /missing-cc: no such file or directory
make: *** [Makefile:112: yay] Error 2

To solve the issue, installing gcc was enough:

sudo pacman -S gcc

Seems to be breaking all of a sudden in a clean chroot build by CI:

@jguer

Can you please make sudo an optional dependency (optdepends). In the light of the critical vulnerability in sudo some people may want to get rid of sudo on their systems and replace it with some alternatives like su, doas or pkexec.

@mcdragon "DistroTube" is low info click-bait. Disregard it.

Distrotube stated that yay not supported anymore. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3j3tivcm50 Is this true? He is advising switching to paru which is maintaned by Morganamilo
